Does it really warrant it's own entry? It seems like it's the same game with a bunch of bonus content. Is it worth spreading out the "community" to a separate entry?

I agree, this is stupid. Most KS games just have separate entries for their promo content. I hope this isn't a new BGG policy.

EDIT: I figure, from the game description, that the reason is that the promos come inside the box. It's still weird and this should indeed be just a version.

Is there a way to merge this game back to the original one and maybe create a new entry in the versions for the Kickstarter idea.

Having two game entities for an additional 10 cards seems a bit overkill.

I have found this is the case with other Kickstartered NSKN games as well, even if the Kickstarter limited or expansion content is also listed separately.

I think the Kickstarter editions should be merged with the main games and any expansions/extensions should be listed as such.

I agree. this is weird.
We can edit the entry and leave a note to the admin to merge this entry with the basic game entry.
Have anyone tried that?

Please merge this listing back, there is no difference besides some cards that will be sold later.

I would just like to say that, as the publisher, we have nothing to do with Kickstarter Version entries on BGG. In fact, we are against separate entries, but there is nohing we can do about their existence.

We have already asked the administration to remove the Kickstarter editions of our games, but our request was denied. Apparently the "Kickstarter Edition" is a thing now (for some games, but not all games - and we're in the "some" ategory), so they're here to stay.

Well they do have have their reasons.
I talked to them about and they said that since it has another product code (bar code), it should be it's own entry.

A shame but not much to do about it as it's a site-wide policy. I'm sure it's been discussed a lot before as well =/

Yes, delete this entry so that there is only one entry of this game. The KS version is just some promocards extra.

Different Versions of the same game all have different barcodes too (English 2nd Edition is a different barcode than English 1st Edition) so that answer is BS. All splitting things out like this does is hurt the main entry for the game, as the ratings, plays, and rankings are split between multiple entries.

This is very clearly a different Version of the game, and not a Re-implementation (as opposed to something like Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization vs Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization, where the name literally changed, and more importantly the game changed significantly).

Quick Edit after re-reading: I'm definitely not attacking you or anything, just disagreeing with BGG's policy on the matter.

I guess that at least for NSKN games and anything not related to their trading (and ownership), we should agree to ignore the Kickstarter version: forums, geeklists, files, images etc. Unless they specifically refer to the Kisckstarter combo, they should be posted (or moved) to their main/true entry.

While we cannot change the BGG policies (true or fabricated) this is something within our powers.

Idiotic BGG policy. And yes, we could change it. Someone just needs to complain on the forums and start a discussion.

And how to contact an admin? Enough people bombarding them with requests is another way to get things changed.
